The Indians played the spoiler role to a tee yesterday, blowing out the White Sox on a night where a Chicago win would have given them the Wild Card lead. What's promising is that the youngsters provided much of the offense; Ryan Garko continued to impress, going 3-for-3 with two walks, and Andy Marte went 3-5 with a double and a triple.

Kinston swept their way to a series win last night, and the Aeros can do the same tonight with a win in Altoona. You can listen to the Aeros game for free at
